Large jog wheels with pressure detection

Same size as jog wheels on CD players:

 

  • 12cm (4.7") diameter: as large as a compact disc.
  • 1.9cm (0.75") height: as comfortable as on a CD player.
  • 2 large jog wheels you can’t miss.

 

Pressure detection via weight sensors:

Weight sensors detect the user’s pressure by detecting the hand’s weight, to activate scratch mode.
Detection of the hand’s weight activating the jog wheels’ touch control is:

 

  • natural: like on vinyl turntables and high-end CD players.
  • secure: no disturbance from static electricity.
  • intuitive: no need to calibrate.

 

Press down:

The hand’s weight moves the jog wheels down by 0.8mm:

 

  • press the jog wheel down: you feel that you’re scratching.
  • move your hand up: you feel that you’ve released the jog wheel

 

Jog wheels’ control over the DJ software:

While the track plays, you control the DJ software with 2 actions on the jog wheel:

 

  • rotation, to control movement within the track.
  • press down to control scratching.
Thus, during audio track playback:
  • Rotation without pressing on jog wheels = pitch bend (like when you turn a turntable’s ring).
  • Rotation with pressure on jog wheel = scratch (as when turning a vinyl record with hand flat on the record).
  • No rotation with jog wheel press = stop playback (like when you stop a vinyl record’s rotation with your hand).
  • No rotation without jog wheel press = playback continues.

 

Jog wheel accuracy:

Rotation: 256 steps per revolution = 1.4 degrees per step.
Press down: travel below 1mm.


 

Technical specifications

2-deck control
DJ Console 4-Mx Black controls 2 decks in the same way as DJ Console Rmx.

4-deck control
DJ Console 4-Mx Black controls both 2 decks and 4 decks, with 2 buttons switching the decks:
- a deck switch button on the left deck converts deck A into C / deck C into A.
- a deck switch button on the right deck converts deck B into D / deck D into B.
Once a deck is switched:
- all of the commands that the deck’s controls send to the DJ software are changed.
- the letter of the active deck is highlighted in the center of the mixer.

2 stereo outputs

- 2 independent stereo outputs on the rear panel:

  • 4 RCA connectors to connect to a stereo system, a recorder...
  • 4 mono connectors in ¼’’ jack format to connect to a public address amplifier or speakers.
A ground lift switch on jack outputs 1-2, to protect the sound in the event of a ground loop

- 1 headphones ¼’’ jack stereo output, located both on the top panel and on the front panel.
The headphones play the same channels as outputs 3-4 on the rear panel.
 
The 2 ways of using DJ Console 4-Mx Black audio outputs are:
For a mix inside DJ Console 4-Mx Black:

  • connect the speakers/amplifier to outputs 1-2, to play the mix for your audience.
  • connect headphones to one of the 2 headphone outputs (front or top), to preview tracks.
For an external mix (using an external mixer - Virtual DJ Pro (not included) or other DJ software required):
  • connect DJ Console 4-Mx Black outputs 1-2 to inputs 1-2 on the external mixer.
  • connect DJ Console 4-Mx Black outputs 3-4 to inputs 3-4 on the external mixer.
  • mix on the external mixer, and connect headphones to the external mixer.
  • use DJ Console 4-Mx Black to control the virtual decks.

2 stereo inputs

- 2 independent stereo inputs via 4 RCA connectors:

  • Select the audio source type in the DJ Console 4-Mx Black control panel: phono/consumer line/pro line/boost.
  • Boost mode supports +8dBu signal level (for use with Pioneer CDJ players, for example).
  • If the audio sources are vinyl turntables at phono level, connect the turntables’ ground cables to the DJ Console 4-Mx Black grounding screw.
- 1 microphone ¼’’ jack mono input, located on both the top panel and the front panel.
The microphone input can be set:
  • as a talk-over source (default mode): the microphone is played on outputs 1-2 over the music in the background, using the music attenuation level set in the DJ Console 4-Mx Black control panel (0dB, -3dB, -6dB or -9dB).
  • or as a standard source, replacing inputs 1-2.
- DJ Console 4-Mx Black pre-amplifies the microphone input by up to +34dB.
